English term or phrase: apparel factor
"Our business has developed into much more than the New York-based apparel factor it began as more than 50 years ago,” said the president and CEO of XXX.

The text is about a financial services company, so it has nothing to do with clothing. How would you translate it?

Creo que haya un error en la frase que citas al escribir la palabra "factory" que es la que encaja perfectamente en el contexto.
Aparentemente la empresa comenzó como una fábrica de ropas y se desarrolló hasta llegar a la compañía financiera que es hoy
